TOBACCO Shares New "Extremely NSFW" Video
- Words: Melkorka Licea
After officially announcing the release of his forthcoming third solo album, Ultima II Massage, for Ghostly back in February, eccentric Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Tobacco (a.k.a. Thomas Fec) has now shared a disturbing video for album opener "Streaker." Directed by the multi-talented Eric Wareheim, with the help of Notrabel, the nauseating piece takes Fec's affinity for the super creepy to new heights. Beginning with a bizarre infomercial introducing the viewer to a very particular kind of massage clinic, the camera then remains in a "point of view" angle, guiding viewers from one deranged room to the next. What follows is an unsettling band of masked naked people writhing and unnaturally traversing about, as the track's harshly distorted vocals, off-key synth pads, and thrashing noise guitars only encourage the madness.
TOBACCO's Ultima II Massage will see a release on May 13, but before then the NSFW video for "Streaker" can be watched below.
